Abstract

Field spectroscopy involves the study of the interrelationships between the spectral characteristics of objects and their biophysical attributes in the field environment (Bauer et al., 1986; Milton, 1987). When applied to vegetated surfaces, the spectral characteristics are function of the status, composition and structure of the elements measured. There are more elements that add undesired effects to the overall signal as the soil background or the viewing and illumination geometry. Like every other measurement in the field, it is very important to be familiar with the instrument used and conscious of good practices that ensure the acquisition of reliable measurements. Moreover, for the comprehensive use of the data in future studies, it is very important to document the measurement protocol and a proper collection of measurement auxiliary data. This chapter compiles some basic theory about photon-vegetation interaction and some guidelines for field spectroscopy measurement.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
